Todd,

On 19 Jun 1977, I was involved is a serious auto accident.
Due to the injuries received in that accident, I had a death experience.
Below is a link to my best written recollection of my death experience.

I can identify with many of the situations that you faced.
My parents thought that I had lost my mind, and I quickly found out who were my true friends.
The dagger that remains in my back to this day is that my father told me that it would have been better if I had died in the wreck.
The feeling of loss and facing the world alone was tremendous, and over the next few years, my escape was found in various drugs.

In 1984, I was sitting at lunch with my grandfather. Suddenly the feeling of death grasped my being.
I looked to my grandfather and said, "Tell Nonnie that I said hello." Nonnie was my grandmother that passed several years prior.
My grandfather looked at me and said, "I sure will." That night my grandfather had a stroke, and he feel into a coma.
A few days later he crossed over.

A few months later, I stopped all drugs cold turkey, and enrolled in college.
About that time, I met a lady, and I began helping raise her kids.
Upon graduating college with BS in computer science, I began climbing the corporate ladder.
By 2000, I was in the fifth management layer from the top at IBM. I had made it.

In 2000, I saw that the computer industry was heading for a slow down, I suggested that we move back to our other house.
On 1 Jan 2001, my best friends son committed suicide.
Over the next couple of years, the lady that I had been with for fifteen years fell in love with my best friend.

April 1st 2003 was my first day living alone, and I became the real April's fool.
Within days, my world had collapsed around me, and the feelings of being alone were compounded by the memory of feeling alone in 1977.
The closest analogy that I can think of is having your skin pulled off while standing in an iodine shower. 

In July of 2003, Brad Arnold of Three Doors Down touched my soul with his lyrics.
I had a pocket full of Kryptonite. Over the next few months, my world view took a 180 degree turn.
On 16 Sept 2003, I stumbled into abstract photography. Within months, I had created over 9,000 abstract photographs.

In March of 2004, I awoke from a dream where I saw one of my abstracts reflected like a Rorschach.
I immediately went to my computer, and I created my first reflection.

People see some many different things in the reflection. Do you see anything?

As my passion grew, I created thousands more abstract photographs.
Below is a collection of abstract photographs created from Dale Chihuly glass.

In the Spring of 2004, I began to use reflections of my abstract photographs to express my thoughts.
I began to try answer one burning question. "How could I have been in a spirit state observing the physical world?"
My Scientific mind would not let me grasp an answer. Yet my abstract art kept opening new avenues of thought.
I began to express myself in a collection of Montaj images.

In the Fall of 2004, I began work on a collection of Montaj expressions that began to answer many of my questions.
The events of my life had lead me down a path of discovery that lead me to
Monsignor Henry Gracz of the Immaculate Conception Shrine in Atlanta Ga.

In November of 2004, I sat down with Herny Gracz, and I told him about my roots in Atlanta history.
How my family lived through the Civil War in the heart of Atlanta. How they did not evacuate.
How they lived the real Gone With the Wind. How the very church we were sitting in rests on stones quarried and placed by my family.
Then I told him about my death experience, and I presented one of my Montaj creations to him.

In our conversation, I asked Henry Gracz,
"If a Christ were to return today, how long would they have before the world took them out?" Henry smiled, and I said, "Fifteen minutes?"
Henry shook his head side to side, and I said, "Five?" Henry started to move his head up and down.
Then I said, "In those five minutes, I bet a Christ would do one thing. They would write down Jesus the Christ.
Scratch out the "the", and write down an "a". Leaving Jesus a Christ. Elevating everyone to his level, so no one would desire to kill him.

As we parted ways, I told Henry, "If my writings are correct, something great is going to happen in December.
On December 26th 2004, the great quake struck Andaman Island at 6:59 am.
Taking into consideration the International Date Line, the great quake struck at 19:59 EST. Just so happens that I was conceived in 1959.

With coin incidence after coin incidence occurring in my life, I took on the mission of refining my Montaj into a concise expression.
Over the next few years, the Montaj lead me to the creation of an equation that uses the energy of Einstein,
the force of Newton, and the logic of Socrates to describe a moment of time as infinite. I call the equation the KnoWell.

The KnoWell equation shows how wave energy interacts with particle energy.
I finally had my answer as to how I was in a spirit state observing the physical world.
The below linked letter to Fay Dowker explains how to apply the KnoWell to answer some of the outstanding questions in cosmology.
The KnoWell strongly suggests that we live in a Steady State Universe.

The next few years were spent trying to give the KnoWell equation a chance to survive.
Instead of trying to force feed the KnoWell to people, I began targeting those that had inspired my in the creation of the abstract photography.
I began going to concert venues, and I would create a Montaj from the concert ticket stub.
I would present the band members some of my abstract prints with a hand drawn personalized KnoWell on the back,
and then I would get the band members signatures to create a Montaj marking the event.

Since art galleries want nothing to do with my work, I went to the Atlanta High Museum,
and I measured their space. I used a 3D computer modeling program to create the Atlanta High Museum,
and I placed my artwork on the virtual walls. I made a video of how my art would look on the Atlanta High Museum's walls.
I took the video down to the Woodruff Arts Center, and said, "You really should have a showing of my art while I am alive and can sign them."

The last room in the virtual walk though has signature wall showing a collection of some of the bands
that have one of my abstract photographs with a hand drawn personalized KnoWell on the back.

Recently, I reached out to the curator of photography at the Woodruff Arts Center, and I have not heard back from him.
Also to this day, I have not heard back for the Woodfruff Arts Center.

I have the making of a series of books,
but most of my efforts have been directed towards the creation of abstract photographs and Montaj images that document events in my life.

I KnoWell, what is to be will be. I just hope that the KnoWell will survive this age of fundamentally extreme ignorance.

Your thoughts are most welcome.

David Noel Lynch
